Description: With the collaboration of Richard H. Siderits, M.D., of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Hamilton, New Jersey, the Historical Library is making available on the web several popular medical texts from the 15th through 18th centuries. This project was conceived and begun by Dr. Siderits in 1994, with the assistance of a project team. Using rare books provided by the Historical Library, Cushing/Whitney Medical Library, Yale University, Dr. Siderits converted the full texts to electronic form through keying or scanning. The texts selected for this ongoing project have been primarily works of popular medicine and pharmacy in English.
